( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Aha, this was a helpful kick in the pants. When I do a simple script as you suggest, everything works swimmingly. So there's something in the home-grown modules in between, that we are using, that's corrupting things. So at least I have a starting point for sleuthing now.

One thing I've noticed in the past, is that I must disable $pdf->{forcecompress} = 0. Sometimes it's okay even with forcecompress left enabled, other times it really scrambles the presentation when displaying via a PDF reader (text enormous or skewed or mispositioned on the page). Turning it off makes it so there's dependable display of the results.

Is that common -- where forcecompress causes issues?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
